Charles A. Rohrmann, Jr., M.D., Endowment for Radiology Resident Educational Excellence

We thank our donors for your continued support to the Endowment! This newsletter features residents who participated in global health outreach, providing them with unique teaching opportunities as well as rich cultural and educational experiences. Lindsay, Zhong, and Josh each came back to UW Radiology with a new perspective on how they can make a difference in the lives of others, even across continents!
The Endowments also support residents who have been accepted to present their research at national radiology society meetings. Murat Sadic’s participation in the Future Leader Academy at SNMMI provided him with new skills and knowledge as he is now an Acting Instructor for UW Radiology in the Division of Nuclear Medicine, and resident Kevin Chorath continues to develop his network of radiology colleagues as West Coast Representative at ACR.
Our Diversity Visiting Student Program supported three promising medical students this year, and participant Sophie Curie subsequently matched to the UW Radiology Diagnostic Radiology residency!
I now offer my final words of gratitude to all of our UW Radiology family – alumni, faculty, fellows, residents, and staff – for your support and the opportunities you provided to our trainees by continuing to engage as participants in this journey!
Sincerely, Betty Lanman, Assistant to the Chair, UW Radiology
Our heartfelt thanks to UW Radiology alumni, faculty, staff, and friends who continue to give to the Educational Endowments that support our residents and trainees. Please take some time to read the impactful stories in this year-end edition of the newsletter. You may be surprised at the far-reaching and powerful ways in which your gifts have supported research, education, and outreach.

Your support of the UW Radiology Department is key to carrying out our mission to train the practitioners and leaders of tomorrow. Many thanks to our generous donors!

Rohrmann Endowment funds support resident research publications

The Rohrmann Endowment funded the publication of “Primary Thyroid Hemangioma, A Rare Diagnosis in a Patient with a Painless Neck Mass” and “Oncocytic Carcinoma of the Parotid Gland as a Manifestation of Birt-Hogg-Dube Syndrome” in Radiology Case Reports. This funding provided opportunities for two residents to share their research with a wide audience reach.

We thank all donors who generously support UW Radiology!
